What is My ‘Actual’ Internet Connection Speed?

Mar 18, 2010

Ever wondered what connection speeds you are really getting from your internet service provider?  The FCC recently created a free website that allows you to test your connection speeds to determine exactly what you are receiving.

Broadband.gov is a new internet site that allows you to test your bandwidth; this is the rate data can be transferred back and forth between your PC and server of the website you are trying to access.

Often times, Internet service providers promise you certain connection speeds and more often that not you are getting significantly less than what has been promised. Testing on a regular basis can help you pinpoint certain times of the day when latency occurs and determine what you are actually getting for what you are paying in terms of connection speeds.
